Blue Earth County Commissioner Vance Stuehrenberg urged lawmakers to give voters the choice because, “I believe if you give it to ’em, they’ll make a good decision and we will pass this constitutional amendment.”

The bill will likely pass the Minnesota House but support is reportedly shaky in the Senate. Opponents warn it would pull money away from education and other important state programs.
